Middlesex County Sheriff Mildred S. Scott "Holidays in July" Fundraiser

Credits: Middlesex County Sheriff's Office

MIDDLESEX COUNTY, NJ - "Holidays in July" is a nonprofit organization started by the Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office with the full support of Sheriff Mildred Scott in an effort to give back to the community.  The main goal of Holidays in July is to provide gifts for children and families in need during the holiday season.  The name Holidays in July came from the largest contributing fundraiser that is a basket auction held each year in July.

In November, the  Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office "Holidays in July" was able to sponsor a family in need during a very critical time.  Their youngest child has been battling hydrocephalus his entire life, as well as a slew of other medical issues that seemed to pop up along the way. "Holidays in July" was more than happy to help with a $500 Gift Card donation as well as some much-needed baby supplies.  On December 8, 2017 "Holidays in July" dropped off a large quantity of gifts to Robert Wood Johnson Children’s Hospital which will be distributed to patients during their holiday party.

On December 15,  "Holidays in July" handed out gifts to all of the children and families who will be in the hospital throughout the holiday season.  Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office Holidays in July was also fortunate enough to have extra toys to donate to Harmony Family Success Center in New Brunswick, so families that are victims of domestic violence are able to celebrate a happy holiday.

"Holidays in July" along with Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Mildred Scott would like to thank everyone who made these amazing holiday donations possible.  Without the help of so many businesses, families, and individuals in an amazing community, none of this would have been possible.

For more information or details, please contact the Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office at 732-745-3271.

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)


How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
